Kansas City, Missouri politicians who defend city taxpayer support of a new nuclear weapons parts plant owned by a city agency cite the retention of jobs as major justification. Kansas City Peace Planters commissioned a report by Dr. Teresa D. Nelson and Dr. Lloyd J. Dumas to examine the jobs issue related to production of nuclear weapons parts in comparision to alternative uses of such a facility.
Teresa D. Nelson is an independent researcher and consultant with a Ph.D in Public Policy and Political Economy from the University of Texas at Dallas. Lloyd J. Dumas is Professor of Economics and Public Policy at the University of Texas at Dallas.
On the August 9, 2011 edition of Tell Somebody, we hear from co-author Dr. Lloyd Dumas about the report, Maximizing Job Creation: An Analysis of Alternatives for the Transformation of the Kansas City Plant.
